When it comes right down to it, XIII is a fine game. I have a feeling it'll disappoint many, simply because the pre-release hype became a bit too intense in the past few months. But with your expectations tempered, there's enough gameplay here to keep you entertained for at least a little while. I wish the multiplayer offered more, as it would no doubt extend the title's replay value. The single-player experience is enjoyable, if not revolutionary. And hell, maybe the graphical style really does it for you. By all means, give XIII a shot. Just don't expect the FPS of the year because, sadly, this isn't it.
